New art installation lights up Bay Bridge's Western span
San Francisco is globally famous for being home to the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, but tonight it’s the Bay Bridge that’s making international headlines.
A new installation called “The Bay Lights” launches with 25,000 LEDs lighting up all the cables across the Western span of the Bridge, transforming it into an illuminated sculpture inspired by the surrounding environment.
Sculptor Leo Villareal is the project’s light artist, but Ben Davis is the man who came up with the idea for the installation.
Hana Baba speaks with him about the nearly two-mile long art project that debuts tonight at 8:30pm.
